1,057 Possible Causes for Iron Deficiency, Photosensitivity

  • Erythropoietic Protoporphyria

    Erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) is a rare inherited disease characterized by dermal photosensitivity due to the accumulation of photosensitizer protoporphyrin IX.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This indicated that anemia in EPP resulted from an absolute iron deficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following sunlight exposure, the resulting photosensitivity is manifested first as pain, later as erythema, edema and dermal lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alopecia

    Khellin is a furanochromone photosensitizer whose chemical structure is close to psoralens and has previously proven its efficacy in vitiligo in association with ultraviolet[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can also be attributed to underlying diseases such as lupus and iron deficiency, because of a hormonal imbalance or with the use of certain medications.[dermatology.ca] PUVA: Treatment consisting of the combination of a photosensitive medication (psoralens) and long wavelength ultraviolet light (UVA).[capmedica.com]

  • Iron Deficiency

    […] activity of uroporphyrinogen III synthase and the accumulation of nonphysiologic isomer I porphyrin metabolites, resulting in ineffective erythropoiesis and devastating skin photosensitivity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] deficiency progresses to iron-deficiency anemia.[en.wikipedia.org] Iron deficiency anemia is a significant problem worldwide and more so in developing countries, like India.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    We reported two cases of SLE with psoriasis vulgaris with clinical manifestations as recurrent erythroderma with photosensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was diagnosed with SLE with pernicious anemia and iron deficiency anemia. The rare association of SLE with pernicious anemia was reported previously in few patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While denying a history of any rash, photosensitivity, oral ulcers, or seizures, his physical examination did reveal metacarpal phalangeal joint swelling along with noted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypermenorrhea

    Prolonged use of Yarrow may cause photosensitivity of the skin in some people. Therefore, it is advisable not to exceed 15 days of treatment.[naturalexis.com] Iron deficiency anemia may result if the condition goes untreated, as the excessive bleeding can deplete the iron levels of the blood.[wisegeek.com] Low hemoglobin may be the result of insufficient iron. Menorrhagia may deplete iron levels enough to increase the risk of iron deficiency anemia.[pharmacypedia.org]

  • Cheilitis

    The target of our study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of PDT in actinic cheilitis, using a methyl-ester of aminolevulinic acid (MAL) as topical photosensitizing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Plummer-Vinson syndrome is the combination of dysphagia, angular cheilitis , atrophic glossitis, and esophageal webbing in the setting of iron deficiency anemia.[wordhippo.com] Daylight PDT (D-PDT) is a novel PDT modality in which the activation of the topical photosensitizer is induced by the exposure to natural daylight instead of artificial light[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Photosensitivity may be controlled by avoiding exposure to light. Removal of the spleen is useful in some cases of the erythropoietic type of porphyria.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] These findings suggest that the neurovisceral symptoms of AIP are not associated with generalized hepatic heme deficiency and support the neurotoxicity of ALA and/or PBG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] used in oral contraceptives and prostate cancer treatment), and possibly smoking, combine to cause an enzyme deficiency in the liver.[genome.gov]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    Differential diagnoses for variagate porphyria and hereditary coproporphyria also include photosensitivity.[orpha.net] Inducing iron deficiency improves erythropoiesis and photo sensivity in congenital erythropoietic porphyria. Blood . 2015;126(2):257–261.[medcraveonline.com] The majority of patients exhibit acute attacks, while 20% can also present with skin-related symptoms, such as photosensitivity and blistering skin lesions.[symptoma.com]

  • Mucolipidosis

    Video-electroencephalogram (EEG) [Figure 1] was consistent with a symptomatic generalized epilepsy with no photosensitivity.[neurologyindia.com] While laboratory analyses of blood samples reveal increased levels of gastrin, iron deficiency anemia may also be diagnosed.[symptoma.com] deficiency.[sickkids.ca]

  • Whipple Disease

    Some of the side effects of this combination of medications are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and photosensitivity.[epainassist.com] Investigations revealed iron deficiency anaemia and hypoalbuminaemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed white patchy lesions in the duodenum.[caribbean.scielo.org] Protein and vitamin malabsorption may lead to oedema and ascites, anaemia from iron and folate malabsorption, bleeding and clotting disorders from vitamin K deficiency, and[pmj.bmj.com]
